2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1 inch pieces

This was a 5 star meal. Easy and we both enjoyed it

Recipe from:


    1. now this sounds good However, I could never add alligator....just chicken or some beef for me.

    2. Gregory sent Gabe the alligator for Christmas so he wanted to use it in something.We had it in Cedar Key and it was pretty good.

    3. glad that Gabe likes it.......I heard it tastes like, I have to know what I am eating and then if it sounds different, no thanks.

    4. I love sweet potatoes in my chili too. Pinning this from the Bloggers Brag Pinterest Party. Sounds yummy!

    5. Of course, I love the idea of using alligator in chili!
      I've never had chili with sweet potatoes and I like that this can easily be turned into a vegetarian dish. (yes, I know it's hard to believe I said that!)
      Thank you for sharing this week!
